Willow Smith is in trouble over the outfit she wore the to the American Music Awards this past weekend. Turns out the yellow custom made, one-shoulder harness she wore is actually a Mother of London knock-off. Everyone assumed that Willow’s stylist Mariel Haenn is at fault, including Mother of London designer Mildred von Hildegard.
“I’m disappointed and saddened that this will negatively impact my business. My original design is now recognized in the mass media as someone else’s work, and it’s very hurtful on both a personal and professional levels. I hope this can be resolved, and I wish nothing but the best to Willow.”
Haenn later Tweeted,
“Just an fyi, we only dressed Rihanna last nite. I don’t like when people try to credit me for work that’s not mine.”
She then emailed COILHOUSE Magazine:
“To be honest I have no idea who ‘styled’ her or the designer. Wish I did. I don’t ask my clients who they used when I’m not available.”
Willow Smith is way too young to be involved in this drama. Whoever did give her the outfit just needs to apologize.
